Throughout the summer, PokerGO will bring fans across the globe exclusive access to World Series of Poker final table streams and Poker Central will be following all the WSOP action. Each day, “World Series of Photos” will tell the daily stories from the Rio, so you don’t miss any of the sights of the WSOP.
Event #47 – $1,500 Monster Stack
The biggest event of the week is far from crowning a champion, as 234 players are returning for Day 3 of the Monster Stack. There are some big names at near the top of the leader board, including Paul Volpe, Scott Montgomery and Maurice Hawkins, but Scott Baumstein is looking down at the entire field. The New Yorker bagged the top stack heading into the event’s penultimate day of the popular event and is in pole position to claim the seven-figure score that awaits the eventual winner.
Event #48 – $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo Championship
The buildup to yesterday’s final day of the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo Championship was all about Phil Hellmuth and his quest for a 15th career WSOP bracelet. In the end, it was two other past bracelet winners that got heads up and after winning his first bracelet last year, Christopher Vitch added another to his trophy case last night. Vitch, who goes by “DeathDonkey” on Twitter, defeated Benny Glazer for the title and while he joins the Double Bracelet Club, Phil Hellmuth will have to wait for another chance at #15.
Event #49 – $3,000 Pot Limit Omaha 6-Handed
Same chip leader, different day. Chino Rheem was near the top of the counts heading into Day 2 of Event #49 and the two-time World Poker Tour winner and former November Niner is now pacing the field heading into the final day. The final table of the $3,000 Pot Limit Omaha 6-Handed event will stream live on PokerGO and if Rheem can keep his foot on the gas, he could claim his first-career WSOP bracelet.
Event #51 – $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo Championship
Ray Henson has put together a tremendous World Series of Poker thus far, including three final table results, and the Houston-based professional could be setting himself up for another deep run in the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo Championship. Henson, pictured earlier this summer, bagged a top-ten stack and the current WSOP Player of the Year leader is clearly showing no signs of slowing down heading into the second half of the summer.
